After spending time in both Florence and Rome this summer, I came away with a renewed appreciation and adoration for all things Italian! So, on this Columbus Day, I’d like to pay homage to an Italian who has forged his own path in fashion, Giambattista Valli.
Do you recall a certain fabulous dress he designed for the new Mrs. Clooney?
Well, his divine designs were sashaying at the Duke Mansion in Charlotte, at the invitation of Capitol, a month before his dress debuted on Amal in Venice. That doesn’t surprise me as Laura Vinroot Poole and the ladies of Capitol are ALWAYS ahead of the fashion curve.
Italian design + Southern hospitality = one amazing fashion show. Enjoy!
Like a box of macaroons, these dresses are pretty and fluffy but not too sweet. What I would give to have a cinderella moment in one of these!
